Inviscid Flow about a Double Ellipse

  • Gino Moretti
  • Mauro Valorani
Part of the Notes on Numerical Fluid Mechanics (NNFM) book series (NNFM, volume 29)


The λ-scheme and shock-fitting are applied to analyze the flow about a double ellipse on a variety of free-stream Mach numbers and angles of attack, and accuracy and reliability of the results are discussed.
